Gibbs Denley Present an Insurance 101 at National Federation of TMO Conference

Published 3rd July 2018

The National Federation of Tenant Management Organisations (NFTMO) hosted their annual conference last week in Blackpool. Amongst the attendees, the majority from Tenant Management Organisations (TMO), were Gibbs Denley Insurance Services (GDIS) who exhibited at the event and presented a workshop.

Business Executive, Phil Smith from GDIS, led the workshop, styled as an Insurance 101, a guide to key considerations when insuring a TMO. Opening up the floor to discussions, audience members explained the issues they faced in protecting their TMO from harm and shared tips for TMO management.

Speaking of the NFTMO Conference, Phil commented "How can you use Risk Management to protect your TMO, have you got the right insurance cover and why GDIS should be your Insurance Broker of choice are among the questions we discussed last weekend with TMO members. It was great to hear their feedback and experiences of running a TMO which certainly helps us to ensure our policy cover is adapted to meet our client’s individual needs. I really enjoyed my time at the NFTMO Conference and loved meeting people who are devoted to improving their community for the better".
